couple that with sequestration thing that would be 3.6 to 5.2% decline in gdp. that would be deep into negative territory, right? >> absolutely. and you must remember that if you're at 2% growth and get down to like a half, it is really not sustainable. melissa: no. >> because it is like a man riding on a bicycle. it is so slow he falls off. we're growing as slow as we can get away with without tumbling down. melissa: that 2% today that was better thaexpected is actually horrible because we continued at this rate, it would take usike, seven, eight, nine, years to add back jobs to get to the last administration's low unemployment rate of four or 5%, right? it would literally take six or seven, eight years. >> it would take at least that long especially longer. i expect people to get off the bench to start looking for work again. put this inerspective. ronald reagan inherited a mess too. dole-digit inflation. double-digit interest rates.
